An "Occupy the DOE" protest planned over the weekend aimed to target the Department of Education and high-stakes standardized testing and build upon last year's Save Our Schools march, organizers said. They planned to conduct four days of rallies in Washington, D.C., ending today with a march to the White House and other events. Organizers also said they are hoping to raise awareness about the Opt Out movement, in which parents are encouraged to pull their children from standardized testing.
